The conference Sound to Word in Bilingual and Second Language Speech Perception will be held at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, from April 1-2, 2016.

The goal of the conference is to provide a venue for discussing how bilingual and second language learners perceive their two (or more) languages and how the particularities of speech perception in individuals who know more than one language influence lexical representations.  

We invite abstracts on topics related to speech perception and how sounds are encoded in the lexicon of bilingual (two languages from birth) or second language (additional or sequential languages) listeners. We are particularly interested in presentations that test theoretical models or proposals and and relate to the following issues:

    1. The role of phonetic detail in the bilingual lexicon and lexical activation.
    2. The role of variability in the input and its effects on lexical encoding in bilingual and second language        
    3. The role of orthography in speech perception and lexical activation.
